Got FTP? Improve Performance, Reliability & the End-user Experience without Replacing Anything

FTP was once the dominant solution for sharing files among distributed groups and teams. It was perceived to be easy and cost effective for any IT team to implement.

Today’s media operations teams are moving faster than ever, and their content needs to move even faster.
